As I mentioned to you in my previous update, my motion to return some common sense to the rules regulating moped and scooter parking was sent to the chair and members of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee and Councillor Michelle Berardinetti, a member of that committee, was prepared to move it on my behalf at their meeting today. However, the committee chair, Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong, decided that he was not interested in considering the item today and adjourned the meeting before Councillor Berardinetti had an opportunity to present it.
I will not allow petty politics to prevent us from doing the right thing. Therefore, I intend to bring my motion to the July meeting of City Council to direct the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee to consider this item. Unfortunately, because the summer is upon us and due to Councillor Minnan-Wong’s actions, our motion will not be able to be debated by the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee until their next meeting in September.
No matter where you live in Toronto, I encourage you to contact your local Councillor and the mayor in support of this initiative. As we get closer to the July meeting of City Council, I will follow up with you to ensure that you continue to be informed.
